Passenger lifts are the type of lift that most people will be familiar with, and the chances are that we’ve almost all used a passenger lift before! Passenger lifts can be used in a wide range of different buildings, including both commercial and residential applications. Passenger lifts are, unsurprisingly, used to transport passengers between floors in a building, and can come in several different types. Passenger lifts come in a range of different shapes and sizes (which will depend on the size of the lift shafts available), and can usually carry between two and thirty passengers, though most passenger lifts you encounter will have capacity for around eight to twelve passengers.
Passenger lifts are the preferred choice where speed of travel, the capacity of users, and improving traffic flow within a building are important factors, whereas platform lifts are ideal for buildings that don’t have easy access for the disabled or are used in low-rise buildings and commercial buildings. Public buildings, office buildings, residential buildings, museums, restaurants, shops, hospitals and industrial premises with two or more floors will likely require some sort of lift if you are to provide your users with an easy way to navigate your building, as well as to provide disabled access and access for all!
